Membrane Materials for Hydrogen (2023 Program)

This report focuses on perfluorinated sulfonic acid (PFSA) proton exchange membranes (PEM) commercial technologies, process economics in the US, Western Europe, and China for those homogeneous, reinforced and catalyst-coated membranes for the first quarter of 2023 as well as global production capacity. These are crucial to green hydrogen production (i.e., hydrogen made from renewable power via electrolysis). NexantECA also provided a high-level analysis of the business and strategic considerations as well as the technology availability from the perspective of a company entering or expanding into the PFSA PEM market.
